The Good News, the Bad News, and How To Do It

Almost three-quarters of all Americans go online daily, much of it for using social media, and nearly one-quarter are rarely offline. Like it or not, social media posts have become a major source for information. How can you take full advantage of this phenomenon to promote your work?

The workshop will cover the various modes of social media marketing, but will focus on the major outlets favored by most artists: Facebook, Instagram, and website links.

Thursday, September 13, 7-9 pm
Social Hall of the Unitarian Universalist Society
121 No. Pleasant St, Amherst

Artists will discuss current trends in social media use, the most effective platforms to get your work noticed, how to avoid the negative aspects of social media, and how to grow your social media presence. You’ll learn tips and best practices for sharing your work, building and engaging a social media following, and establishing relationships with new fans and collectors. Q&A session to follow.
